RESTON, Va., May 21, 2010 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has been awarded a contract by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under the Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (SITE) contract vehicle. The company will provide worldwide IT coverage and technical support services to the government, including system design, development, fielding, and sustainment of global intelligence and command and control assets vital to national security.

Northrop Grumman was one of six large business prime contractors selected for SITE, an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract structure with a ceiling of $6.6 billion, collectively, over five years..

"This award leverages Northrop Grumman's vast experience providing all levels of IT and technical support services," said John Olesak, vice president of integrated intelligence systems for Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "The SITE contract is a testament to our longstanding relationship and strong performance history with the DIA."

The SITE contract vehicle is designed to enable streamlined execution, simplify purchase requests, standardize acquisition documentation, improve enterprise program management for customers, provide better reporting capability, improve contracting performance and data integrity and make the DIA's overall IT acquisition processes more efficient. Although managed by DIA, the contract will also incorporate IT requirements from customers across the Defense Intelligence Enterprise and Intelligence Community.

SITE will replace the multiple awards for DIA's Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DODIIS) Integration and Engineering Support Contracts (DIESCON3) and replace the Air Force's longstanding Intelligence Information, Command and Control, Equipment and Enhancements (ICE2) single award contract vehicle.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global security company whose 120,000 employees provide innovative systems, products, and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.
